The Decemberists


Recommended Posts

My friend is trying to get me to check out The Decemberists here in Vancouver tomorrow night.. Its a bit expensive at $22 but I'll likely go. Anyone here have any thoughts on this band? I've heard of them through all the usual indie rock media outlets but haven't heard their tunes.

I think the Decemberists are brilliant. I'd gladly pay $22 to see them ... but I've never heard any reports of how their brilliance does or doesn't come across in their live shows.

Lyrically very clever, and musically accomplished as well. Allmusic.com once described them as a "seafaring Belle & Sebastian or a more grounded Neutral Milk Hotel", which is pretty accurate as far as I'm concerned.
